Suurmond Application Life Cycle

 

Efficient and energy-efficient dosing and pumping

SUURMOND pump unit with a MAAG gear pump

In the process industry there is a wide choice of types of pumps. Depending on the process for which the pump is used, the selection is limited. When a pump is used for dosing additives, for example, or for pumping water, the choice will quickly fall to gear pumps or centrifugal pumps respectively. 

Centrifugal pumps

Centrifugal pumps are traditionally driven at speed. To achieve the desired volume flow, the pressure line is pinched. This is best compared to a garden hose that is connected to the tap, where the tap is fully opened and the hose is then pinched so that only a small stream of water comes out. This creates a higher pressure in the pipe that would not actually be necessary if the tap were to be opened only a little. At that moment, the pressure (and therefore the problem) is moved to the tap.

In fact, a lot of energy is used to build up a pressure, which is not necessary for a small stream. In this way, a lot of energy is wasted during the life of the pump over many years, because centrifugal pumps often have large installed capacities. 100 - 350 kW is not unusual. There's a lot to save here.

Limit your CO2 emissions and save on energy costs with gear pumps

The speed of gear pumps is often controlled via frequency conversion of the e-motor. The speed of the gear pumps is adjusted with a flow meter or a "load cell" and a closed-loop control in such a way that the pump delivers the desired volume flow. Here, dosing accuracies of 0.1 ... 5% can be achieved. As a result, no more pressure is built up than necessary and much more efficient and energy-efficient pumping can be done.

The gear pumps that Suurmond supplies all have relatively small installed capacities. These typically vary between 0.2 kW and 18.5 kW! In short: the gear pump solution offers significant energy savings over centrifugal pumps.

Your choice

Where centrifugal pumps often have large installed capacities, gear pumps are all very effective and efficient! Do you want to limit your CO2 emissions and save on energy costs? Then gear pumps are the best choice.

To produce homogenous, consistent micro pellets ≥ 0.3 mm

Suurmond have added a new product range to their portfolio for the food and pharma industries; the MAAG PFS series for hot-melt extrusion and micro pelletizing. With the advanced technologies by MAAG, a new era has begun when it comes to making high quality solid dosage forms for pharmaceutical and food applications.

MAAG’s technologies produce homogenous, consistent micro pellet sizes, ensure continuous manufacturing in simplified processes, avoids the creation of dust during the process and require no grinding! The complete PFS range complies with pharma and food directives!

The use of micro pellets

Pellets are neither powder nor granules; they are characterized by a defined shape and a very narrow particle size distribution. This allows a very wide range of applications that integrate active substances such as tableting, and capsule filling in the pharmaceutical industry, and sweetener and gum base in the food industry. Since no grinding is used in the process, the structure and the effectiveness of active substances remain unaffected.

The PFS range consist of:

Process equipment for highest quality micro pellets

HME and micro pelletizing process

Hot-melt extrusion

Hot-melt extrusion (HME) has been revealed as a successful technology for a large spectrum of applications in the pharmaceutical industry, with proven robustness for numerous drug delivery systems. With HME, even the processing of poorly soluble carrier/active substance combinations, no longer poses a major problem in the pharmaceutical industry.

Some of the most well-known applications are for taste-masking of drugs, solubility enhancement of poorly water-soluble compounds, controlled, extended, sustained and targeted drug delivery.

The MAAG extrex® PFS gear pumps are specially designed for applications in the pharmaceutical industries. Such applications require specific design characteristics: high discharge pressure capability, constant throughput, gentle conveying, and narrow temperature ranges. In such an environment, the proven extrex® gear pumps unfold their full potential.

Micro pelletizing

MAAG offer different types of micro pelletizers, meeting precisely the demands of the pharmaceutical industry with its specially developed pelletizing systems. The innovative pelletizing technology results in particles of uniform shape and size for optimal direct further processing.

The various types of pelletizing systems are all dedicated to a certain type of formulation or process such as:
